Balfour Beatty has awarded Breedon Group a major supply and lay surfacing contract on the A9 Dualling Programme in Scotland.

Under the contract, Breedon will supply and lay material on a 9.5 kilometre stretch of the A9 between Luncarty and Pass of Birnam. This is the latest section to be widened to full dual carriageway as part of Transport Scotland's £3 billion upgrade of 129 kilometres of the A9 between Perth and Inverness.

Breedon will also supply all the structural concrete and a significant volume of the aggregates required. The company will base its operations at its Loak Farm sand & gravel pit near the centre of the project, where it will erect a mobile asphalt plant and mobile concrete plant to service the scheme, drawing on supplies of aggregates from Loak and its neighbouring quarries at Shierglas and Clatchard, together with high PSV stone from Barbae Quarry.

Alan Mackenzie, managing director of Breedon Northern, said: "We're delighted to be playing our part in one of the most important infrastructure projects in Scotland, which is designed to deliver economic growth through improved road safety and reliable and quicker journey times, as well as better links to pedestrian and cycling facilities."
